  • Ideal journey during the dry season (November-April), but also works during green season.
  • After the flight to San Carlos, at the mouth of the Rio San Juan, the ship is omnipresent! You must love to navigate
  • Considering the plane and ship fares and the diversity of the region we recommend this stay for 6 or 5 days. Flexible of course!


  • € 700 per person for a group of 4 people including: Managua - San Carlos roundtrip by plane operated by La Costeña company, private transfer from Granada to the airport, ferry tickets, all breakfasts, 9 meals, all private transfers except travel from San Carlos and El Castillo (local boat), all entrance fees. And a Nicaragua Descanso biologist guide throughout the whole trip!
  • € 520 for a group of 8 people.
  • Air travel can also be replaced by a bus or in public boat, cheaper but ... takes much longer!


  • It is also possible to sleep at Los Guatuzos reserve, in the heart of nature, surrounded by the marsh.
  • For those who love to navigate, an original alternative: trip back to Solentiname/Guatuzos by boat, across the south coast of the lake, all the way to Cardenas. It's an interesting alternative if you are heading to San Juan del Sur, for instance. 
  • Unique option flying by hydroplane from Granada!!!
